These Muslims took away our Holy Land. Did you heard Pope Urban II ? Follow the call, take back The Holy Land.
Christian perspective of Crusades
We totally agree with you,take back Holy land from those Muslims.
Muslim perspective of Crusade
These Christians brought there army to Jerusalem and they trying to capture the city.
We would defend our Holy land at any cost from these Christians.
So crusades started because Turkish Muslims captured Jerusalem and prevented Christians visiting Holy land and that's how 1st crusade started was at 1096-1099,most of the army were untrained peasants who didn't succeeded but knights did captured Jerusalem. Unfortunately for Christians (2nd 1147-1149) and (3rd 1189-1192) wasn't as successful as a 1st one,so basically 2nd and 3rd ones were a big fail and also Muslims had a great ruler called Saladin who defeated Christians.
And the other Crusade that was called Child Crusade was trough 1200s. Christians also had other Crusades with no success.And you know what's Ironic ? England king Richard convinces Turks to let Christians to visit Holy Land
One of the most great effects that crusades did was decline a Feudal society because most of the lords/kings either died or spend too much money on wars and army.
